James Brooks is an awesome instructor. He was very understanding and taught me the basic repeatable swing! I would definately recommend him to anyone who is skeptical. I will be back for the graduate course next year!

My husband and I attended the Mel Sole golf school with James as our instructor. Both of us being novices, James was able to communicate with us and teach us how to properly swing a golf club in no time. The videos were a great learning tool as you see exactly what you're doing wrong and what you should be... More

When we met James Brooks last year, my confidence was almost shattered. After my first three day school, he restored not only my swing, but gave me a regiment of practice to use at home. My practice strictly followed his outlined workouts and I stuck to the plan throughout the rest of the summer and into the winter. When winter... More

Worth every penny, From first phone contact to driving away our foursome had a ball, the most important thing I learned was that I couldn't fix my problems by reading and self medicating my game. I finally know how to swing a golf club, I may not do it all the time but I know how and should I fall... More

Dave Olberding taught me (a beginner) and my husband (intermediate golfer). His instruction was very clear and visual. This enabled us to understand and remember the correct application of golfing fundamentals. Dave uses state of the art video training techniques. Well worth the time and money. We are from out of state and wished we lived closer!

My instructor, Dave Olberding, helped me immediately. All my experiences at the Mel Sole Golf Schools have been excellent and this was a similar experience! Highly recommend it. My wife and I enjoy the 3 day school but if you have less time you can benefit from even a hour with Dave.

I heard such great reviews of this golf school, that I flew from NJ to attend. Dave was my instructor and he was very patient as he provided me with suggestions, drills and techniques to improve my game. The video and commentary that he emailed me, provided great follow up for review. If you are in the myrtle beach area,... More

I took my 12 year old son to the Mel Sol Golf School over his Spring Break in March to get him ready for the middle school golf season. We both had an excellent experience. James did a great job explaining the various fundaments of the full swing, chipping, pitching, putting and bunker play. I’d recommend doing the 3 day... More

We are staying in Myrtle Beach this week and my wife decided she finally wanted to bite the bullet and be introduced to golf - valuing our friendship and my marriage, I declined to give her that first lesson, never mind my lack of experience. The folks at the resort we are staying at referred us to Rosemary at this... More
